  • welcome to the sprouted life!

    We are a gluten free family trying to balance real food eating & traditional food practices while still eating on a budget and living socially in an over-processed food society. This blog is intended to share: our favorite recipes, our gardening & canning experiences, our food flops (ask me about my egg-free, paleo, almond flour pancake mess) & life with three little dirt covered boys.

    All of our recipes are gluten free, many are egg-free or offer egg-free options (even though our family is no longer egg free, I still try to include egg-free options) and many are dairy free, paleo & GAPS friendly. we don't "follow one specific diet" but our cooking style is best described as "gluten free but inspired by wapf + paleo + raw + realistic."

    Welcome to the adventure we call life!

cookouts & splash parks {happy memorial day weekend!}

it is hot out!

there has been very little actual cooking in our house the last two days,  because we have been spending the weekend at the splash park with the kids & at cookouts with friends.  i had big plans of creating an interesting side dish to take to our cookout last night, but after spending 5 hours of our saturday meeting with a home builder, i ran out of time and energy.  so needless to say, our contributions to the cookout, were last minute dijon mustard potato salad, (with the random ingredients in our house) and homemade applesauce (we are trying to eat through our pantry before we move).  other than that, we have literally eaten every left-over we could find in our refrigerator and grilled applegate farms organic hot dogs. this week i will share some of the quick recipes of our weekend foods, including our organic quinoa& black bean mexican style salad (served hot or cold).  but for now, here are a few pics of what we have been up to this holiday weekend!

happy memorial day!
